Sophie Tucker - what a character. Her raw brand of humor was ahead of its time, like Mae West. What those gals could have done with today's freedom of self expression would have most likely made even the likes of Madonna blush.

"One of these days, you're gonna miss me honey..." - and we do.

I found an autographed Sophie Tucker LP at a junk shop in the middle-of-nowhere last summer. Lucky me!

Actually, I thing it's more remarkable to find a Sophie Tucker album that's not autographed - the old girl really got around!
